Georgia Tech quarterback Tevin Washington said he has been preparing as if he will start against Air Force in the Independence Bowl on Dec. 27 in Shreveport, La.
Coach Paul Johnson practically put to rest on Thursday any chance that Joshua Nesbitt had of returning from his broken arm to play in the Dec. 27 bowl game.
“I hoped that he would get a chance to play,” Washington said. “That was a hard way to go down as a senior. But I have to prepare the same way.”
Washington, a redshirt sophomore, has played well since Nesbitt’s injury in the Nov. 4 game at Virginia Tech. He is averaging 54.7 rushing yards and 53.7 passing yards per game. But in games he has started, he is averaging 96.3 rushing yards and 97.3 passing yards.
